Shortly before today’s game, the White Sox made the following announcement:
There will be much more to come on South Side Sox, but for now, my goodness. What an update. Kenny Williams and Rick Hahn have held high positions in the White Sox front office for as long as I have been a fan. I am grateful for their contributions to the playoff teams they helped put together, especially the 2005 squad. However, they overstayed their welcome with the White Sox, and their departure is ultimately for the best.
As usual, NBC Sports Chicago and WMVP 1000 AM will cover the game. The first pitch is scheduled to happen at 7:10 p.m. Central.
